Mine (and my bags) have some aftermarket automotive weatherstripping that is glued in place, and works very well to seal - it came that way when I got the bike. You might want to look into that.

or any rubber tubing that's about the right size. split it open and fit on to the lip, close lid and let it sit in the sun for a few hours.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
